2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT–Mod 05 [Bike Transport Rig], 08/14

I have completed the woodwork finishing.

Looks Good? A darker finish still, would have been fine with me.

The results are stylish and functional. I love woodwork. I will polish the wood and paint the 2 L-brackets for my Trek Project One Mount [the one that sits back] black.
